Eyes is an optical illusion that offers the viewer the opportunity to seesomething ordinary through a different perspective, giving the possibility of a whole new experience. Viewers will be drawn towards the centre of the jewel that was used as hyphen between the subject and the lens. Lights and reflections together with sound create a gateway into a new realm that allows viewers to relate to something familiar yet strange.
